8th Graders Embark on 8-Day Tour of Our National Heritage
Our WCMS National Heritage Tour takes our 8th grade students on a week-long tour of the historical high points in Colonial Williamsburg and the Washington DC area. This tour supports the WCMS curriculum in each of their classes but is especially relevant to their American History class. Students are able to touch and see history in a new way as they visit each historical location personally.
